That Memphis trade is garbage. Who's trading down to take potentially damaged goods, that's been incredibly inefficient, and is on an expiring deal? Maybe if it's Kuzma, but even then, trading down seems like a mistake.

And I don't understand the Bulls trade, no matter how many Laker fans post it.

How are you going to say Ingram is incredibly inefficient BMiller?

And for the Lonzo deal seriously? The Bulls would love to give up the 7th pick for a Zo, a guy who plays tremendous defense and could help set up the rest of the team. The suns and bulls want him for a reason, it doesn’t make sense for the lakers to give him up for the 6th or 7th pick. It’s not lakers fans pushing for it, it’s fans of other teams.

You realize that same package has been proposed?

THEKING, refresh my memory. What was Ball's FT% last season? How many games did he miss last season? What evidence do you provide to validate Ball's "great" defense? All I see is a player who misses games and can't be on the court late in games because he can't hit FTs when the ball is in his hands.

Bulls would do better seeing if Garland or White fall to #7 and if not, get into the Rozier sweepstakes.

Theking: I'm saying Ingram is inefficient based on statistics and reality. His efficiency numbers put him below Andrew Wiggins. His box score +- shows the Lakers are better when he's on the bench. His PER is below league average.

Ball is a good defender, that's missed 30+ games each of his first two years, has no shot, and has family drama/ baggage. He's a poor man's Rondo. That's not a good thing. And I've never seen a fan that wasn't a Laker fan propose trading Ball for a top 10 pick.
